"Take the Lead'' my fourth novel, en espanol


Saludos desde Miami Beach, Florida. Estoy muy orgulloso de mi primer libro en Espanol "Tomar La Iniciativa." Durante los ultimos seis anos, muchos lectores me habian pedido que escribiera un libro en Espanol, porque no hay muchos libros sobre homosexuales latinos.

Este libro esta inspirado por mi propia experiencia. Mi padre tiene la enfermedad de Parkinson y que queria escribir una historia sobre un hijo gay tratando de ayudar a su padre cuando el vive tan lejos. El libro toma lugar en Boston y Miami, dos de mis ciudades favoritas.

Tambien queria escribir una historia sobre como es ser un hombre homosexual, de unos años (aunque el hijo en el libro tienes 35 anos), en una ciudad llena de estudiantes universitarios.

Este libro al igual que mis otras novelas (Boston Boys Club, Miami Manhunt and Beantown Cubans) son sobre el poder de la amistad pues mis amigos me inspiran.

Cuando leas mis libros debes sentirte como cuando compartes con un grupo de muy buenos amigos ( como una version gay Latino de Sex and the City)

Espero que disfruten de "Tomar La Iniciativa" tanto como yo disfrute escribirla.  


English translation of the above text:
Greetings from Miami Beach, Florida. I am so proud to present my first novel in Spanish, "Tomar La Inciativa" which is the translation of  "Take The Lead."  For the past six years, many readers have asked me to publish a book in Spanish because there aren't many novels about gay Latinos.

This novel was inspired my own personal experience. My father has Parkinson's disease and I wanted to write a story about an adult gay son trying to help his dad when he lives so far away. The book takes place in Boston and Miami, two of my favorite cities. (There are a few chapters in Fort Lauderdale too.)

But I also wanted to write a story of what it's like to be an older gay  man (although my character is 35 years old) in a city filled with college students,

This book is similar to my other novels (Boston Boys Club, Miami Manhunt, and Beantown Cubans) in that they are about the power of friendships because my friends inspire me in so many ways.

When you read of my books, you should feel like you're in the company of a group of good friends (like a gay Latino Sex and the City).

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
